When the boss asks you to do something, you have to do it. Sometimes, even on national television.
UFC president Dana White nominated Ronda Rousey for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and Rousey was a trooper, dousing herself with ice-cold water on FOX Sports Live on Tuesday night.
"Where’s my discretionary bonus?" Rousey, who was wearing a dress, jokingly asked White.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been a viral sensation over the last few weeks. When someone nominates you, you must either pour a bucket of icy water over your head within 24 hours and capture it on video or donate $100 to ALS research.
It’s great White and Rousey are helping aid awareness of the terrible affliction, which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Let’s hope they dipped into their wallets for it, too. Because if everyone was just getting water poured on them to avoid donating $100, the whole thing would be rather pointless.
White also nominated Shaquille O’Neal and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta to do the Ice Bucket Challenge. Rousey chose her "Expendables 3" castmate Sylvester Stallone, good friend Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and potential next opponent Gina Carano.
Maybe the next time we hear of Carano it’ll be her challenging Rousey — for the UFC women’s bantamweight title.
